Colorful neighborhood lighting displays and glowing trees are a sign of the season. But all those twinkling lights can drive up energy demand and result in big home energy bills. 

Viewer Tip: What's a decorator to do? Show your holiday spirit with LEDs (light-emitting diodes)! LEDs consume at least 75 percent less energy than traditional light bulbs and provide these great benefits:

Safe: LEDs emit less heat than traditional bulbs, reducing the risk of fire and burns.

Sturdy: LEDs are less likely to break because they are not made with glass.

Long-lasting: LEDs last up to 25 times longer than traditional bulbs - you could still be using the same LED string 40 years from now!
